DRAFT - DEFENCE INSTRUCTIONS AND NOTICES – DRAFT

(Not to be communicated to anyone outside HM Service without authority)

Title: Proposed change in foot drill timings
Audience: All Regular Service Personnel
Applies: Following review
Expires: N/A
Reference: 2009DIN02-216
Released: Estimated 4 / 2009
Channel: 02 – Personnel
Content: Change in foot drill timings
Sponsor: SP Pol Ceremonial
Contact: Miss Carrie Onstaff , SP Pol Foot Drill Review 1a, x9671 8961
Background – The Need For Change:
1. The current pace of 120 paces per minute ( ppm ) has remained unchanged for over 100 years.
2. Formed bodies of Armed Forces personnel are continuing to move at this pace.
3. There are currently faster PPM in use amongst a minority of troops
4. Slower timings result in unnecessary delays which are avoidable
Key Points
Introduction of a Forces-wide pace of 140ppm would result in formed bodies of moving faster from point to point
SP Pol Foot Drill estimates that £2.1 million pounds per annum could be saved following swifter movement of formed bodies of troops
There will be consideration given to exempting eg. Household Division on Ceremonial and State occasions only
There will be special transitional arrangements for personnel who are currently deployed on Operations
